Dear Family & Friends,
Y’all know I am VERY passionate about this program. We are saving families and we are saving lives. Please help.
Tomorrow -- September 18, 2014, from 6 a.m. to midnight CT - Heroes on the Water (HOW) is participating in Giving Day. That day, every donation $25 and above will be multiplied when you donate through the website:
Founded in 2007 at Brooke Army Medical Center, HOW now has 40 chapters delivering the program throughout the U.S.. Each chapter provides healing kayak fishing outings free of charge to our nation’s veterans. You may choose to give to a specific Chapter by entering the Chapter Name in the message field. Chapters are 100% volunteers, which means 100% of your donation goes to getting vets out on the water for a calming day of fishing from kayaks.
In the words of a HOW participant:
“I know kayak fishing saved my life. I had a world convinced I was ok but my demons won more battles than I did. Kayak fishing gave me something to look forward to.” ~Jason Austin, Iraq War Veteran
Please mark your calendar for September 18 to visit www.northtexasgivingday.org/#npo/heroes-on-the-water between 6 a.m. to midnight CST to make a donation. You will be helping warriors experience a sense of peace and saving lives as Jason describes.
The Giving Day goal is to raise $25,000 to help 250 wounded veterans unwind and reconnect. Please join with me in giving back to those who have given so much. Also, please forward this message to your family, friends and co-workers and invite them to also give that day. Our country’s injured military personnel and veterans deserve our help. Remember to Get Up and Give on September 18!
All the best,
Jim Dolan | CEO | Heroes on the Water
